Rob Antony Comments on Nishioka, Blackburn

1

On Blackburn: "I talked to Nick today, let him know and told him, ‘Go down there, try and get straightened out and when September comes we’ll evaluate the situation,’" Antony said. "There’s no guarantees he’ll come back. We could select him and bring him back if we want, or he could not be back this year — whatever we think is the right situation when the time comes." On Nishi: "I’m sure it’s a pride thing for any player," Antony said. "No. 1, it’s tough to be in the minor leagues; but No. 2, when you’re taken off the major league roster and 29 other clubs pass on you, it tells you you’re not doing very well." http://bollingerbeat.mlblogs.com/
